Roof Of Two-Story Tulsa Home Collapses In House Fire
TULSA, Oklahoma - A two-story home near 87th and Sheridan is heavily damaged by fire. Tulsa firefighters responded to the home in the 8700 block of South 71st East Avenue around 1:30 p.m.
Flames were shooting from the windows of the home and the roof collapsed.
We're told there was a fire in the fireplace of the home and some of the fire went up the chase of the chimney. They said that fire spread to the attic and the wind helped fuel the fire.
The homeowner said several pieces of artwork on the second floor were destroyed. Firefighters were able to save some pieces on the first floor.
"The firemen were able to pull a lot of the art work from downstairs...my best pieces are upstairs, and none of those were saved," Bridgette Fee said.
The homeowner said she was unaware there was a fire until it was already going. Firefighters said it's a good idea to have a smoke alarm in your attic in case of a situation like this.
Firefighters had to back out of the house when it became too dangerous to fight from the inside.
No one was injured.
